Pathé comedy with Max Linder. Premiered in Paris on Dec. 14, 1906 "Attempted Suicide" is a travesty on the "red tape" of the French police service; at least the characters seem French and the uniforms worn are of that nation. A young man disappointed in love wanders to the woods, where he hangs himself to the limb of a tree. A boy discovering him, runs in alarm to tell the gardener, who is conveniently at hand; the gardener views the death struggles, but, although having a...

Pathe comedy, written and directed by Max Linder. Cast: Max Linder, Lilian Greuze, Louis Baron Released in the UK on Dec. 31, 1914. An amusing farcical comedy, played with infinite verve by the always delightful Max and other capable humourists. The story does not possess a great deal of plot, and what there is of the latter is not particularly original, but the action is fast and full of genuinely amusing situations. Quite an entertaining production. (The Bioscope, Dec. 17, 1914)

Her charms move him so greatly that he is induced to join the troupe with whom he is to play the part of "performing bear," doing antic gambles clad in a bearskin. Whilst he is caressing the beard, however, it comes off in his hand,...

Needless to say, he is a very inferior imitation and, his spuriousness having been discovered, he suffers badly at the hands of those he has attempted to deceive."

Pathe comedy with Max Linder, Jacques Vandenne The story tells of two sons and a father, all of whom are paying separate and clandestine attentions to the same girl. They arrive one after the other, and are secreted in various parts of the room, where they remain until all three suddenly peep out together. The final scene, where the elderly papa is enjoining a discreet silence upon his son, is, perhaps the best thing of the kind Messrs. Pathe have yet done. (The Bioscope, Oct. 21, 1909)
